PhD in simulation of permafrost change and quantification of confidence in resulting data products

This project will develop methods and tools for evaluating permafrost models with
observational data. This is important because the lack of meaningful and quantitative evaluation of
permafrost simulation results impedes the improvement of simulation tools and the use of their
outputs for informing adaptation design or policy. This project will use the database compiled in
PermafrostNet (PINGO) as a source of observational evidence to provide confidence in
simulation-based permafrost climate services.
